2016 CCPTP Award for Lifetime Contributions to
Education and Training in Counseling Psychology

Purpose of Award

To appropriately recognize faculty who have distinguished themselves through significant, long-term service and contributions to education and training in Counseling Psychology.


Recipients of this award must have a documented history of significant and long-standing contributions to the education and training in counseling psychology. Contributions may include those made as a training director, member of the CCPTP Executive Board, and member of relevant APA boards and committees (e.g., the Committee on Accreditation, APA Board of Educational Affairs, SCP VP of Education Advisory Board, SCP Executive Board). Though not required, contributions may also include scholarly work relevant to the education and training of counseling psychologists.

Selection Process

Any CCPTP member may make a nomination. Nominations are due no later than April 15th, 2016. Nominations will consist of the CCPTP member’s nominating letter, two letters of support, and the nominee’s CV. All letters should be no longer than 2-3 pages. Nominations should be submitted electronically to the chair of the review committee by e-mailing the materials to Amy L. Reynolds, the CCPTP Award Committee Chair, at [email protected]. It will be most helpful if all nomination materials were contained in one document [either as word document or PDF] with the nominee’s name and institution as part of the folder name—e.g., Smith-U.of Oregon). 

The materials will be distributed electronically to the review committee, composed of at least two members of the CCPTP Executive Board, one past recipient of the award or a substitute approved by the board, and one member from the general CCPTP membership. The committee will submit their selection to the CCPTP Executive Board for approval and The Board will notify the award winner no later than May 13, 2016.

Presentation of Award

The award will be presented at the CCPTP business meeting during the annual APA convention. The award will include an appropriately engraved plaque and a $1,000 cash prize. The recipient is strongly encouraged to attend the meeting and award presentation.
